Welcome to the website for Unity Spiritual Center, in Asbury NJ. Unity celebrates life. We view spiritual growth as an on-going daily practice in knowing our oneness with the power and love of God. The spiritual message we present is a positive approach to life, seeing the good in all people and circumstances. Unity relates our spirituality to daily needs, in a practical, affirming way that for every need there is a perfect answer.
Our Sunday Service is a celebration of the presence of God in our lives. We encourage and support every individual to look within and find his or her connection with the Spirit of God that reveals all wisdom and direction. We give attention to the innate good that exists in you right now, and seek to continually grow, unfold, and evolve into expressing our divine nature. This exhibits itself as a spiritual community that cares about each other’s dreams, hopes, and challenges. We express this as love, acceptance, encouragement, and authenticity. We are a heart-centered community that seeks to inspire and awaken one another to a greater experience of God and life!
Please join us for our Sunday Service at 10:00 am. We have an excellent Youth Education program that begins at the same time. You are also invited to attend any of our classes and workshops. We honor the Spirit of God within you and affirm that the same Spirit is guiding you to your highest good—right now!
Rev. Terrence Padgett
In charting our course through transition – we have been preparing the soil – now we have to figure out what kind of a group; what kind of a future we want to grow into.
Jeremiah 29: 11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
